Essential skills for the next decade

In the world of machine learning, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things, how do organisations ensure that their people have the skills to thrive as businesses digitise at a faster and faster pace?

Qualification and professional development programmes will need to adapt at an ever faster pace, and focus on giving professionals a new set of skills to thrive in the workplace of the future.

Organisations and individuals will need to develop these top ten skills for the next decade:

  1. Complex problem solving
  2. Critical Thinking
  3. Creativity
  4. People Management
  5. Team Collaboration
  6. Emotional Intelligence
  7. Judgement and Decision Making
  8. Service Orientation
  9. Negotiation Skills
  10. Cognitive Flexibility

Organisations that can support their teams to acquire, refine and master these skill areas will be those that prosper.
